Luna Vista Rotary presents
"The San Francisco Munich Trio"
Saturday, June 20 at 6:00pm
 
The San Francisco Munich Trio will transport you back to the turn of 20th Century at the time when the Woodland Opera House was built. The performance will consist of compositions which originated in Paris around the time of “Toulouse-Lautrec and La Vie Moderne”: works by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Alexandre Tansman and Frédéric Chopin, one of his last compositions, the beautiful Sonata op. 65 for cello & piano. Also on the program are a trio “Pathétique” by Michail Glinka, the father of the Russian Romantic and Ludwig van Beethoven’s Variations on a theme of Handel, whom Beethoven considered “the greatest composer.” 

 

Rostropovich-student Rebecca Rust and her husband, Friedrich Edelmann, former principal bassoonist of the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra for 27 years, together with the Russian born pianist Dmitriy Cogan will demonstrate with their complex and sublime performance this unique time period, when Paris was the cultural center of the world.

"Duffy Bishop"
 Aka Patty Duffy
Saturday, July 11th at 7:30
 

Duffy Bishop is a local blues icon and legend in her own time. Part of what makes this band so special is the talent Duffy surrounds herself with. Husband Chris Carter’s lead guitar is just the right complement to Duffy’s raspy, soulful voice and her 3 piece horn section, stand up bass, keyboards and drums all tie it together perfectly. These guys are some of the best musicians in the world and have worked with the likes of Roy Orbison, John Lee Hooker, Lou Rawls, Chicago, and Etta James, among others.

 All seats $24. Click here to purchase your reserved seats.

 

 


 

 

 

Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline Tribute

Sunday, July 12th at 2pm

 

Johnny Cash & Patsy Cline Tribute Concert featuring Johnny Price & the Rhythm Riders and Dee Price present two tributes in one show; The Johnny Cash Tribute that closes the show and the Patsy Cline Tribute that opens the show. Their "Back in Black" Johnny Cash showcase is a world-class show that is wowing audiences everywhere they perform. 

 

With their dedication to preserving the original "Cash" sound and Johnny Price's uncanny visual and vocal portrayal of the "Man in Black" himself, WS Holland, Johnny Cash's drummer of thirty-seven years came to California to perform with the band in 2008 and immediately invited them to come back to Tennessee to perform with him. About the band WS Holland said "Johnny Price and The Rhythm Riders is the best Cash tribute band I've ever heard. They are as good as the original. It doesn't get any better than The Rhythm Riders--" 

 

The Rhythm Riders Patsy Cline tribute features award-winning vocalist Dee Price. It is a masterful recreation of the legendary country music artist Patsy Cline. Dee captures the unique style of one of America's greatest female vocalists while The Rhythm Riders give attention to every detail, from the creative musical arrangements to the melodic harmonies
